to stop. >> in washington, i'm stacy cohan. >> uncertainty over the fiscal cliff is having a ripple effect from washington to wall street. u.s. stocks ended the session on friday in the red for the fifth straight day. a triple digit loss for the dow which tumbled 158 points, the nasdaq lost almost 26 points. the s&p 500 shed almost 16 points. and the gridlock in washington could help the current congress make history as the most unproductive ever. it's amazing. a review by the huffington post shows 219 bills have been passed this session, that's compared to 383 bills passed by the previous congress, and 460 by the group before that. now, to avoid the distinction, congress needs to submit about 100 bills to president obama over the next few days. something tells me they're not going to be able to do that. but there is one thing the senate has been able to agree on, getting aid to victims of superstorm sandy. by a 61-33 vote, the chamber passed the measure offering $60 billion in help. it heads to the house which must approve the bill by thursday or else the process has to start all over aga

news" headlined la pierre, the craziest man on earth. barbara, you know your way around washington, you know the political landscape there. how did what could only be described as a rant go over in your fair city? >> well i think one of the big questions right now, i think for the whole country, tragically, unbelievably, this newtown massacre. was this in fact the 9/11 moment, if you will for the issue of gun violence. has it fundamentally changed the american fabric of society. that is concerned about this issue. will that be enough to push the political landscape. senator dianne feinstein of course, democrat of california, very powerful within the democratic party. and the senate. she says she is going to introduce legislation when the congress comes back in january. on controlling the sale of assault weapons again. big question, will that ban on the sale of assault weapons be reinstated. it's all a question of how much political muscle is behind each side. and how much mr. la pierre may, may have damaged the nra's case. by virtue of how that friday press conference went over. miguel?

in washington. did the nra, wayne lapierre hurt himself in friday by what can only be described as this rant? >> well, look, emotions across the country are running so high, aren't they, on this? many people i think would believe this is the 9/11 moment of the gun control issue, after this terrible, terrible massacre in newtown. so, the question is exactly as you frame it, the political oomph, if you will, behind each side. after all of this, will the nra be -- have enough political muscle power on capitol hill to push back successfully against any new legislation that might be coming or will they have damaged themselves? what is the calculation? will those who favor reinstating the assault of the -- the ban on assault weapons or other new gun control legislation, including those high-powered magazines, those -- those magazines that can carry tense and tense and tens of rounds, will they have the political oomph this time to enact new legislation? >> barbara starr in washington, thank you very much. >>> earlier, i spoke with state of the union anchor candy crowley about -- we talked about th
